that is most antagonistic toward president obama. i think he got 30% + of white men to vote for him. he was down in those categories, but white men are the heart and soul of it. you say he is the most divisive. i think we live in very divisive times in terms of our politics, in terms of our media spending it is highly polarized here in the congress. people who do not want to compromise see compromise as a dirty word and are worried they are threatened by the other side spending the whole idea of politics having to see good in the other side and were there is possibility of common ground has gone away. i do not think you are wrong in saying that president obama's era is one of the most divisive in american history and i question whether or not he has a divisive personality. i think his approval ratings in terms of -- he is close to 50%. personally, there are lots of americans including white men who like him, but they do not like his policy. the economic policies in particular tend to be highly divisive in america at this moment. host: part of his speech talked about his hopes going forw

president obama's own announcement to a few days after. the rollout wasn't what the white house wanted but something they'd been thinking about for a long time. the immigration issue, presidents who face opposition in congress often resort to executive actions. obama even had a program for it called "we can't wait." the most famous "we can't wait" provision was on immigration, where he basically stopped the deportation on young hispanic people brought her as immigrants as children. that's, as you know, the fastest-growing voting population in the country. >> and quite possibly could have delivered him the state of florida. let's talk about some other interesting issues, highs and lows of the campaign, that happened within a month of each other, the first would be a low, that first debate, a lot of folks thought mitt romney was tipping the scales after that night in denver. >> well, astonishing, several things were going on there, i don't think president obama likes these debates. i don't think he really respected governor romney at that point, probably thought he might have been a bit

something and move the ball than doing nothing. and, yes, president obama won the white house, but the american people also elected a majority of republicans back to the house. so what we have is a divided government where one of our chambers is in republican hands, the white house and the senate is in democrat hands. that means that the message the people were sending is that they want compromise. if president obama wants to build a legacy, get things done, complicated things like immigration, not just fiscal cliff, but all things on his to-do list, it requires compromise. and if the republicans don't want to be scenes as obstructioni obstructionists, they also immediate to compromise. we have to come to the realize that the election ises past. let's put politics aside and let's he get things done. >> ana navarro, maria dough in a, thanks so much. >>> david gregory under investigation. did he violate d.c.'s gun laws on the air? jeffrey toobin joins me straight ahead. >>> an unusual police investigation here in the nation's capital. it started with this interview with a top nr

will have everybody yunited against the white house and congress but i believe that obama still has an upper hand here because he has shown in a sense -- i mean, one, he's more ability to help forge a deal. the republicans can't make up for the loss they have had in public perception over this tax and spending issue. it's too hard, too far to go. too much resistance from within their own ranks. >> talking about plan "b" and being the epic failure of not being sent to the floor for votes, does that take in to question whether or not john boehner could get anything done if over in the senate mitch mcconnell and harry reid craft something? >> no. it does raise the question. that was a blunder by republicans and boehner and obama were moving closer and boehner went and gambled and lost and now the pressure's on the senate. i think anyone that could pass the senate probably could pass the house because if it passes the senate, it's 10 to 20 republican senators. mitch mcconnell, up for re-election. will he craft a deal with harry reid? that's dicey. whatever bill is passed, may not be that popular
